  • On the short side of Piazza dei Signori, the one farthest from The Herb Square, stands majestically the medieval Palace of Cangrande, also known as the Palace of the Scaligeri, the Podesta or the Prefecture. Built at the end of the 13th century above part of the ruins of the Roman Forum, of which the nearby Herb Square is the centrepiece, it consists of an articulated complex of buildings that develop on three sides around a large rectangular inner courtyard, and leaves opened the front facing St. Anastasia's course. It was the residence of the Scaligeri, the dynasty that for over a century ruled Verona (from 1262 to 1387), and became a real palace during the years when Cangrande I of La Scala also came to subjugate Vicenza, Treviso, Feltre, Padua, Mantua and Brescia. The palace has a facade on Piazza dei Signori and another facing the Scaligere Arches, both in terracotta, separated by a wide face overlaid by an elegant balcony. Today it is home to the Prefecture of Verona and unfortunately it is not open to visitors. Only the small loggia located on the right corner has been used for some time for a small artisan market.
